Nicknamed as the "Royal City" and originally founded as the capital city of British Columbia New Westminster has experienced phenomenal change throughout the years. The city is centrally located in the Greater Vancouver Regional District (GVRD) directly bordering Burnaby and allows for quick access into Vancouver East, Coquitlam, Richmond and Surrey. New Westminster is an area experiencing a great amount of growth as it isn't limited by bridges or tunnels to other major cities compared to Richmond or Surrey. Adding to the ease of transportation is the skytrain which runs directly through the New Westminster Downtown area.
Falling behind the City Of Langley and Maple Ridge, New Westminster experienced the third highest rate of growth for residential class in the Lower Mainland in 2018 showing further proof that the city is expanding as more BC residents look for alternatives to buying homes in Vancouver.
New Westminster residents have access to many recreational facilities, access to the skytrain network for direct access to Downtown Vancouver, and major connecting artery Trans-Canada Highway. New Westminster Downtown is experiencing substantial growth with the recent opening of the arts center and river front recreation areas including basketball courts and beach volleyball. The downtown area has also received huge development along Carnarvon Street with high rise apartments being built which have spilled over to the New Westminster Quay properties. New Westminster is within very close proximity to the business parks in South Burnaby. Many young professionals moving out of the downtown core are especially interested as corporate head offices Best Buy Canada, Ritchie Brothers Auctioneers and Samsung are only 10 minutes away from New Westminster if traveling along Marine Drive.
